Performs Per Specs

The Reaper, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: For a lower priced receiver this receiver performs as advertised. While lacking an equalizer, the treble/bass controls provide a bit of boost toward the top and bottom of the audible frequencies. The sound is crisp and not muddy. The A-B speaker configuration allow two speakers to be placed in the front and two speakers in the rear resulting is a more "surround sound" feeling.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Good Remote
  • Cons: Hard To See Controls

  • Summary: I was looking for a basic stereo receiver I could use for my music. This one has all the power and capabilities I need without all the bells and whistles of a surround sound system.

Love it

  • Summary: I am annoyed by reviews that pan every digital device for not being an iphone. This is a stereo receiver and a good one. It's a big plus that you can listen to Internet radio. The setup for internet radio is cumbersome, but you only have to do it once. My stereo is far from my computer and router, so I bought a device called an internet bridge so that the stereo can connect through wireless. Now I listen to Pandora and Sirius XM on my stereo.

Onkyo TX-8050

Excellent stereo, love it.

Victor, Crutchfield
23 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this onkyo tx 8050 'stereo' (as opposed to home theater A/V receiver) to replace a 33 year old yamaha stereo receiver (you can guess my age and economic conservatism). I love this receiver (with the exceptions listed below). In no time I had it connected to my old vinyl phono player, to my Pandora internet radio account, to my wife's ipod nano, and to our CD and tape players.
  • Pros: great sound, great versatility, relatively easy to use remote. Crutchfield's excellent help and service.
  • Cons: only the abominable but necessary app.

good component

  • Excerpt: This component seems to cover a lot of possibilities, <br />about half of which I have yet to explore. But my CD player<br />is producing great sounds now, totally reliable. And even my<br />phonograph is playing my vinyl records without the hummmm, for<br />the most part, still have to find how to ground the phono.<br />Only disadvantage at this point is the almost unreadable front panel: but<br />things come up very readably on the front window. All in all, a good buy!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote

  • Excerpt: I needed a new amplifier to replace an 18 year old Onkyo that was having issues. This machine provides connectivity to all my audio through the USB, Ethernet, optical audio and analog connections. It connected to the home network easily via a wireless bridge (Linksys) and an Ethernet cable...
